Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Kyoung Charles Kim, MD can deliver the desired results you seek from tummy tuck (abdominoplasty surgery). Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) plastic surgery removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen while tightening the muscles underneath the skin. Many of the Plastic Surgeon’s patients come to the LA Area Plastic Surgeon for his best in class techniques for a tummy tuck after years of exercising and their best efforts at dieting fail to give them the flat, toned stomach they dream of.
Tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty plastic surgery, as performed by the Plastic Surgeon in Orange County, re-establishes the strength and integrity of the abdominal wall by repairing the separation and stretching of the two “Rectus” muscles. These muscles (the ones used for “sit ups” or the ones that you hold in to tighten your tummy) are the two major abdominal wall muscles that are normally held together over the front of the abdomen in order to give it its strength and tightness.
